Google combines Chrome OS and Android
Google has announced plans to combine its two major operating systems – Android and Chrome OS – into one bigger and better end product that will bring benefits to all people using it. Basically what happens is that Google will take Chrome OS and stuff it inside Android so that only one Google OS remains on the market.
The reasons for this move are a few and they can be easily understood – Android is much more popular compared to Chrome OS and Google won’t have to support two operating systems anymore. In addition to this there are other benefits such as being able to run Android on notebooks and desktop computers with ease, while also offering all the goodies of Google Play Store. Chromebooks based on the new OS will also get a new name.
The process to combine Android and Chrome OS into one product has started and a few analysts expect Google to demonstrate the new combined OS at Google I/O next year. The new OS, however, will appear sometime in 2017 so there’s quite some time until the release day.
